Maui, the Big Island of Hawaii, is known as the island of the soul.
It’s home to the island’s indigenous population, the Māori, and the first Native Hawaiian to become a US citizen.
And the islands beauty is undeniable.
Māoana is the name of the island.
But it’s not just the island that attracts us, says Michelle Kwan, founder and CEO of Design for Maui.
Design for the Big Apple is about empowering designers to create the products that will be important to the world.
The company has designed products that are affordable, functional, and creative.
And with the help of an army of designers, designers are able to work on projects like food and furniture, which are staples of the Big Isle.
We also design some of the most important products in the world and bring the best of Maui to the rest of the world,” says Kwan.
With a staff of designers and designers on the ground in Maui and a growing online community, the company is able to offer a unique perspective on the island and to create an incredible work environment.
Here’s what it’s like to work for Design for Māi.
The Design for Paui website allows anyone to see the projects that are being developed.
The design team can also collaborate on new products.
The Maui-based company has a staff that includes a design consultant, furniture designers, and designers from across the world working together to make a beautiful piece of work. “
The design team comes from different disciplines, so it’s very important that we work with the right people to make sure that we’re designing with the best materials, the best colors, and making sure that the products we’re making are in harmony with each other,” says Kaua.

Design For Paui is also an ambassador for Mauai.
Each year, Maui residents visit the islands headquarters for an annual Design for Puna event.
This event gives designers an opportunity to share ideas for new products, meet with Maui community members, and showcase their work to the public.
“Paui is such a great place to come visit,” says cofounder and CEO Michelle Kwa.
“It’s a great opportunity to come in contact with our community and see how they’re all coming together.
It also provides a great platform for our designers to showcase their products and create new products together,” she says.
A small office on a street corner on the Big Islands is the design team’s main office.
It consists of Kwan and three other designers who work together in a room.
The designers have a very small office space, so they must have a lot of space to work.
There’s a TV in the corner that’s set up for live streaming of the designers’ design work.
“A lot of our designs are very small and we just need to work with them and we’ll do it,” says one of the designer’s coworkers.
“So it’s great that we can have these little spaces where we can come together and work on different things together,” says the designer.
Kwan also works with a team of designers from France and the United Kingdom.
Their team consists of five designers, including three designers in Mauai, and two in Paris.
“We have the best team in the country,” says designer Renaud Beauduil.
“I think they’re just doing the best thing they can.
They’re all very talented designers and it’s all based on collaboration,” he says.
The team works in the same room as the design department.
They are able and eager to collaborate, because they have a wide variety of skills and experiences, says Beauducil.
Maui designers are not just designers.
The island’s cultural and historical sites are also important to them.
For example, the traditional architecture is considered to be a part of the culture of Mauai and this means the Maui Island Museum, where visitors can see the original designs of the houses that were built there, is very important.
“Maui Island is also very beautiful, because it’s surrounded by a lot more natural beauty and that’s something that we feel strongly about,” says Beauuil, who is from France.
The museum is located on the top of a hill overlooking the Big Sea.
It is one of Mauia’s major tourist attractions.
Designers from around the world work to create new designs, including designs for a new house.
“You can’t get more beautiful than a house that was built in the traditional fashion,” says founder and executive director, Kwan Maui Wai.
“Our design team has been really fortunate in terms of the fact that we have the opportunity to work so closely with a community that is such an integral part of our culture,” says Wai, who has been working in Mauio for over 10 years.
